Boxers or briefs are a matter of personal preference. I have both.

I have a plethora of different types of underware. (I certainly don't belief that briefs can bend your penis) It just depends on what you're doing.

Personally, I thing wearing boxers while doing any pysical activity is potentially uncomfortable or even dangerous. Definately wear breifs, boxer briefs are best.

I find boxer shorts nice to wear on my average day or to run around in the house in. That is all they are good for.

If I think anyone might see my underware I like to wear something a little more asthetic than loose and saggy boxer shorts. Chics seem to dig the boxer breifs, and I also have bikini briefs and string (not thong mind you) bikinis.

Ok, let me know if there is anyway I could seem more flaming gay. I try really hard you know. So concludes my thoughts on mens underware. Hmm, perhaps we should start a similar thread on womens underware?

How does underwear preference signify sexual orientation? There is really no correlation.

I was referring to the 'fasion minded' approach I took towards deciding what underware people should ware. Simply taking advantage of some steriotypes about homosexuals to make a little joke. I wasn't intending to be taken seriously with that remark. However, I was very serious about the rest of the stuff about underware.

Sorry about the confusion.

Ironically enough, I am flamingly gay and my post was, well, nothing like yours. I wonder why the stereotype isn't that talking about underwear like that is flamingly straight. Silly stereotypes. :^)>

Because if cool things like fasion became flamingly straight there wouldn't be nearly enought gay guys left in the world. You wouldn't want that to happen now would you? :P

Okay, you're saying that if being fashion minded made you straight, then there would be, like, negative two gay people in the world? I can see how that would be a bad thing, were there an actual correlation. Bleckh, you've got me there. Sort of.

I shall never admit your triumph!!
Triumph, what triumph am I talking about.

I wasn't saying it was true, I was just saying the stereotype is ridiculous because there are always exceptions. The really sad thing is that I don't know any gay people who are fashion minded at all (except myself, sometimes I think I'm a bit too stereotypical. Nooo, I've become a statistic).

Most of my gay friends are really out and try (subconsiously I think) to conform to as many positive to neutral gay steriotypes as possible. That's just my theory.

Oh, and I'm heterosexual. I think you were inferring that I was gay with your "negative two gay people" (you being one and me being two?) comment. I'm not homophobic, I've just found that I need to tell people that I'm straight from time to time, just to *straighten* them out.

I also wear both, just depends on where I'm going or what I'm doing. During the week I stick to briefs cuz I'm at work, and boxers just aren't comfortable. On the weekends, when I'm usually not doing anything TOO physical, I prefer boxers. As far as briefs lowering your sperm count, I think that has something to do with the idea that it's harder for your body to regulate the temperature there with everything bunched up. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but I would guess that as long as your underwear aren't overly tight, you should be ok (anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here). I do wonder sometimes why men traditionally have just those two choices for underwear and women have what seems like unlimited choices...

Hi! Well, though I have more briefs than boxers, for me that's almost the same. Also, I only have 1 boxers (my girlfriend gave me and they are cool enough and I prefer wearing those, but it depends also on my pants, if they're large i prefer using briefs, at least if i'm going to walk ..but i don't think that's a matter to discuss, whoever uses boxers or/and briefs may be already happy Hihihi

On the question of underwear and sperm count, yes briefs will lower it by keeping things up closer to your body and thus just a little warmer. However, this is not permament, just for the time that you are wearing them. Thus unless you are really trying to get someone pregnant, there is no reason to worry about it. Actually for most guys it should be considered a plus, sort of a partial male contraceptive (although a very inneffective one, so don't go out with out a raincoat, just because you are a tighty whitey guy). Sperm count is not related to potency or level of your libido.

I like the feeling boxers give me. I like hanging loose. The uptight feeling of briefs is uncomfortable to me. Plus I heard holding the testicles to close to the body all the time could reduce your sperm count....

Boxers, briefs, bikini or none...

They are mostly all a matter of preference, but keep in mind two things. Number one, they should be the correct fit. If the underwear is too tight fitting, this can cause physical problems such as lower back pain and pains in the groin as well. I know this from experience and it was not fun. A proper fit is very important to both comfort and good health.

The Second thing to remember is always put on clean underwear! LOL Not only is this important hygienically, but it can also save you some grief if for some reason they become shown to the world or just to a chosen individual.

Aaron is right, a short squeeze is only fun if you happen to own that stock (wall st humor, sorry). Other than that he sounds like the proverbial mother telling her 10 yo to change his underwear, "in case you get hit by a car", as if having clean underwear would make any difference to you as you are lying there in a pool of blood.

I guess I am as guilty as any here, but has anyone wondered why a trivial topic like this one has generated more posts by far than much more serious topics on the same board.

By the way I just noticed my promotion from neophyte to mentor, i like the promotion since as a 42 yo father of 3, neophyte seemed a bit un fitting, and I have always enjoyed being a mentor in RL.

I too wondered about why this is such a hot topic, and as close as I can determine, it has to do with image. Which type and brand are the Reeboks of the under garment world.

Plus it has an added factor of being "intimate" because no one is "supposed" to see them.

As for getting hit by a car, LOL. I was thinking more of an unfortunate incident that happened to me where my pants split right down the back!!! Luckily I was on my bike going TO school. So I was late, but at least not utterly devastated.

You never know... LOL

Some would call me a rebel, but I am just no good at it... I can't seem to conform to that image.

Recently I signed up for a self-help course in procrastination... but I haven't attended yet. The introduction meeting keeps getting rescheduled.

Received a fortune in a cookie once. It read: "Those who are dropped on their heads are doomed to wander their lives in a state of confusion." I am still working to figure that one out.

Aaron,
Your use of the rebel quote raised my interest in your signature, are you the same Aaron from the other board I go to. (Heather has asked me not to mention its name here, or this board at the other place)

There are a few situations where I might wear briefs, but every other day of my life I wear boxers. Looser, more comfortable, and they breathe when it's 110 out.

I used to wear briefs quite a bit when I was younger, but since switching to boxers... I can't go back! The uncomfortableness level is just too much!
